Can you identify this insignia?

We have had this letter from Harold Peacock in Brisbane, Australia. Can any of our readers help him?

Hi Dr Jones,

I found your contact details on your website Persona Naval Press.

Hopefully you can help me, or know someone who can, to identify the RN insignia and service ribbons of a relative.

Attached is a photo of William Alfred Marfleet 1879-1935 who I understand served aboard the HMS Royal Oak in the Battle of Jutland in 1916.

  • What is the insignia on his collar please?
  • Can you identify his service ribbons?

Any help that you can give is greatly appreciated.

Harold Peacock
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
